, remember when a texas lawmaker filibustered a strict new abortion law only to have the legislature pass it anyway in a special session? well, a u.s. district judge just threw that law out. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. in the national lead, we begin by asking of the president those two questions that always seem to go hand in hand. what did he know and when did he know it. regarding the nsa tapping the phones of nearly three dozen world leaders. add president obama himself to the list of those surprised to learn it was going on. a senior administration official tells me president obama did not learn until recently of the nsa surveillance of other world leaders including allies, confirming a report that first appeared in this morning's "wall street journal," citing u.s. officials that the white house did not know until an internal review over the summer after which it ended some of those programs. the senior administration official tells me the program that monitored the phone of german chancellor angela merkel did not end until quite recently. the whi

as the president stood in boston's historic faneuel hall where mitt romney signed into law the health care plan that became the prototype for obama care. >> there's no denying it. right now the web site is too slow. team people have gotten stuck. and i am not happy about it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. >> mr. obama argued romney care wasn't perfect at first, either. >> enrollment was extremely slow. within a month, only about 100 people had signed up. >> but there are also big ditcheses. former romney aides like ex-spokesman ryan williams are disgusted with the comparisons. >> what do you make of that? >> pathetic. >> romney had the late senator ted kennedy by his side, a bipartisan achievement the president wasn't able to match. >> president obama has not done a good job managing the process. he has not hired competent people to run this program. i think we're seeing the disastrous results of that right now. >> romney also rejected the comparison in a statement, saying "had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care the inst
fuentes, our law enforcement analyst is on the phone joining us rights now. walk us through, tom, what happens in an incident, shots are heard at a major u.s. airport like this. what's the normal standard operating procedure? >> well, the first thing, wolf, would be to try to isolate the shooter and determine if he can be apprehended or did he do the shooting and take off running to another location in the airport. obviously, a key factor would be trying to rescue and provide medical assistance to anyone that was wounded there. and especially with life-threatening injuries to try to save them. the next step would be evacuate all the other innocents out of that airport in case this turns into a situation where the individual wants to shoot it out with the police and they end up with bullets flying all over the airport. so they'll want to get innocent people out of there, the wounded out of there. isolate the location. basically set up a perimeter of some kind and then begin the effort to search that terminal and determine where that individual is. the person may have run into a restroom
also alleged she's barred by law from enrolling in obama care. mo are on that in a moment. cnn is it reporting the administration is pressuring insurance executives to keep quiet, which would be an illegal abuse of power, if it turns out to be true. which part of this does not resemble some of what happened in 1973-'74, including a president whose operative explanation keeps changing. van -- >> nobody is losing their right to health care coverage. for the vast jon of people who have health care coverage that works, you can keep it. for the fewer than 5% of american that is buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. >> before -- let me just point out, this is the man who spent three years and thousands of references to no one will lose their health insurance. today for the first time, he began to modify that blanket commitment, but i suspect you don't totally agree. >> there's so much wrong on what you said, it will take the entire show to try to correct the record. i will say this. to even mention nixon in the middle of all this is to put the hype in hyperbol
. if you had a plan before the law passed in 2010 the president said you could keep it, and you can, unless your insurer makes major changes. that turnover has been going on for decades. listen to one of florida's top executives talking about it. >> we're not cutting people. we're transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange. and in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost. >> he's right. this is like your car being recalled by the manufacturer because the brakes don't work. you're getting a better product. the white house may have oversold how little change there would be in the individual market, but there's no conspiracy sear. the individual market has been broken for a very long time. but today that changes. if you have a pre-existing condition like high blood pressure or asthma, you can no longer be denied or forced to pay more. half of americans in the individual market w
was targeting tsa agents, law enforcement officials saying as he was running down the terminal, he essentially was asking people hey, are you with tsa and when they said no he continued running, making his way down. third thing, also, information, there were texts that apparently he was sending in the days leading up to the attack we were just learning in which he was sending them to his father and brother and there was some concern about his situation about how -- what was going through his mind at the time. so these three things suggest in fact, he was looking to shoot tsa agents. that's the premise law enforcement officials are investigating. that's what they tell us, anderson. >> earlier reports said he was shot multiple times but survived. you're saying the shooter is dead? >> no, no, i didn't say that. the shooter was hit three times in the chest, center mass, hit multiple times but we don't know the condition. we've been trying to find out from hospitals throughout the course of the day because that's a significant wound as you can imagine. >> right, obviously. do we know much about his

under the obama health care law. but she insisted because there are so many more options now because of obama care, people can eventually get lower priced health care policies. but that was very difficult for her to explain because it is a confusing process. you saw republican after republican showing stories, telling anecdotes about constituents having problems getting on website. that was an important kind of learning experience that people who are watching this could get. understanding why if they got a letter from their health insurance company they were losing their health care and what they could do in the future. of course, because you have a lot of republicans, in fact all of the republicans there opposed the law to begin with, it was a little bit interesting to hear them complain about the process that they didn't want to happen in the first place. >> dana, stand by for a moment. this is an exchange that kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services had with congress woman marsha blackburn, republican of tennessee. >> so who is responsible for overseeing this
. that could be something he might do. there are apparently some provisions in german law if he came here and testified before a germ parliamentary inquiry committee which is something the german parliament set up, apparently there is a paragraph in the law that would not allow germany to then extradite that person to another country. there might be some sort of provisions, some ways to work that. honestly the german government would probably do everything to try and prevent that. german officials have been saying go enand again, they're very, very angry but want to clarify the situation. they want an apology from the u.s. and want to move on. they certainly don't want edward snowden to become an issue between the two countries. right now, even his lawyer says with things the way they are right now, he would advise his client to stay in russia, suzanne seve fred pleitgen in germany. just a point of clarification. mr. sfroebler is not the foreign minister. we had that on screen. he's a member of the opposition green party, a bit of a maverick in the german parliament. just want a clarifica

scrutiny, as white house officials admit some plans will cease to exist under the law. >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some that can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that's substandard. what is also true is americans who have insurance on the existing individual market will now have numerous options available to them. >> reporter: president obama making an obama care pitch to young people. you must sign up for health insurance to avoid a fine. >> when you look at the number of young people who actually want health insurance but are having trouble affording it, the fact we're making it affordable for them for the first time, that's a big deal. >> reporter: a new study shows 70% of eligible americans between 18 and 34 can now purchase coverage for less than $100 per month. that's if they can sign up. health care.gov was knocked offline sunday, along with the data hub that verifies eligibility for government subsidies.

the questions come. here to break it down is mary ellen. she's a former fbi profiler, a retired law enforcement agent with the police department. thank you for joining us. lou, on a scale of one to ten, how is the response at l.a.x. yesterday? >> exceptional. i think it's a boilerplate response now, don, regardless of where the incident takes place. it involves local agencies, federal agencies, fire, medical, air support, bomb squads. it's effective and thorough. >> what about, you know, barbara starr is reporting there were armed guards there at one point, but weren't there, had taken a break of some sort. what do you make of that? >> i can't confirm that. my experience in traveling through l.a.x. is there are always a type of post just beyond the magna tom ters that you walk through, the devices that screen you for weapons and are manned by law enforcement agency, the los angeles police department or the los angeles airport police. any report that these posts may have been abandoned, i find unusual. i never traveled through once and they were unposted. >> the suspect, quiet, a loner, what are

shortcomings in the same place where the successful massachusetts health care law got its start. but he says romney care also had a pretty rocky beginning. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius finally takes her turn in the hot seat, grilled for hours about the obama care website. >> you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care als

of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the summer of 2009 during the heat of the health care legislative battle and so was this. >> on the is it stump the president says if you like your plan you can keep your plan but if you read the bill, that just isn't so. for starters within five years, every health care plan will have to meet a new federal definition for coverage. one that your current plan might not match even if you like it. >> reporter: fast forward three years, that is exactly what is happening. insurance companies are dropping americans all across the country from their health plans many because policies don't have coverage now required under obama care. democrats trying to calm concerned constituents call it a good thing. >> if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually n
. the president took aim at republicans for trying to destroy his law. >> health care is complicated and very personal. it's easy to scare folks. and it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scare people now are the same folks who have been trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning. >> joining me now is the chairman of the republican national committee. you guys have gone from being the villains to suddenly the heroes. how on earth did this happen? >> it's not a good result as far as the american people go. the problem is not just the website. that's a mess and people can't sign up. now we are getting into really some bad things that are affecting us. the hundreds of thousands beingd finding out with obama. >> as time that people will see fighting over the implementation of law that would be terrible for the american people is worth it and so this is going to require legislative action and you are going to see democrats coming to the table admitting that the president lied and it's a law that would be a disaster for the american people and a lot of these democrat
and since three years after its a law they are still fighting, can you imagine what it would be like if he said yeah, some people's rate wills go up. the thing passed by this much. if they said that, they might have lost the whole thing and politicians are always making compromises like that. for crying out loud, they made a compromise on slavery. >> when -- >> began -- >> when i see the president of the united states repeatedly including the state of the union assuring the american people you want to keep your doctor, plan, you will. he said it again and again and again. now we know that senior members in the very administration knew all along, they have known for three years, probably at least 50% of the people that applied, that would not apply. they would have to change their plan. that's a bare faced lie and i think somebody supportive of obama care. i come from a country that -- >> again, let's look at the perspective again on this. why did we do this? why did we -- why did obama -- a lot of people when they got into office said he made a big mistake and should have went into the eco
the president came at the republicans for trying to destroy his law. >> health care is complicated and very personal and easy to scare folks, and it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scar people now are the same folks trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning joining me now, the chairman of the republican national committee. you guy haves gone from being the villains of the nation two weeks ago to suddenly the heroes. how on earth has this happened? >> well, it's not for -- it's not a good result as far as i think something very bad for the american people, piers. and so look, the problem is not just the website, you know, that is a mess and people can't sign up, but now we're getting into really some bad things that are affecting people's lives and, you know, when millions of people are being asked to sign on to a system that they can't sign on to and then they are also getting notices by the hundreds of thousands that their health care is being dropped and then they are finding out that they will pay more money, you know, it's a lot of broken promises fro
. and step number two is getting information to folks that the law even exists. >> this is what is so, so important. big picture here, the young people. and many of them don't even know this law exists. and those who do know it exists are trying to logon to a website that doesn't always work. it young healthy people cannot or do not sign up for health insurance, can obama care be saved? with me from washington, two of the best a.b. stoddard, associate editor of the hill, and ryan lizza. hello to both of you again. >> hello, brooke. >> hello, hello. you both watches the hearing along with us. i want to ask what piqued your political interest in a minute. first, this is the list we wanted from you. three ways to save obama care. we asked you both for your prescriptions. a.b., i'm beginning with you first. taking a look at your list, you say fix the website. you say, increasesebelius. >> right, you say increase penalties for opted out, and number three, launch a p.r. campaign of obama care happy stories. a.b., let me hone in on this increasing penalties for opting out. what do you mean? >> w
and people who bought private insurance after obama care was signed into law. or if that insurance changed, for example, after obama care was signed. then we all know now, your insurance could go away. it's not clear how often they told people that insurance companies might cancel positions because they didn't comply with obama care and that's happening, too. the administration points out this is information that's been out there a long time and in a statement today, the white house said in part, these protections will improve the plans that insurance companies offer today unless you're in the same plan that you were in when the law passed which is grandfathered out of these changes. in other words, nothing in the act forces people out of their health plans because the law allows plans that covered people at the time the law was enacted to continue to offer that same coverage to the enrollees. so it's a little bit complicated. there might have been an oversell when trying to get this through. >> a lot of people now who like, presumably liked their plans are being told they're no longer eli
fixing obama care, making sure the law works, has to be top priority and with today's announcement that some big tech companies are contributing experts to help fix healthcare.gov, it's pretty clear the administration knows that. wolf? >> the news is not good over at the white house. let's move on. the health care law says that members of congress and congressional staff have to go into these new obama care insurance exchanges but some lawmakers are planning to exploit a loophole in the law. our capitol hill reporter is working this part of the story, lisa desjardens. >> reporter: you probably remember in 2010 when congress froze the affordable care act, they decided that members of congress and their staff should personally feel the ups and downs of the obama care exchange. they wrote that into the law. fast forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was
by passengers in the airport. right here you can see a gun at the foot of that law enforcement officer. that's where police confronted the shooter. you can see his weapon on the floor. an assault rifle. we'll have more on that in a moment of as this was unfolding, people wriding who everywhere. you can see this is a bathroom which was at that point jam packed. and the security check point became completely abandoned. people left everything. left their luggage and ran. we have the latest details from our reportes. experts covering this from all the angles. there are so many crucial questions. i want to begin with casey wian. casey, what are police telling you right now as we await this live press conference from the fbi in. >> reporter: the fbi has identified the shooter has paul anthony ciancia. 23 years old. they are not speculating on any potential motive themselves do say that they believe he acted alone. they describe the situation inside l.a.x. right now as static, meaning no one inside the airport is in any kind of danger. law enforcement sources say witnesses describe him acting peopl
years. it's not a bill. it's a law. i know the tea people think they know the constitution, i don't know if they read it. a bill becomes a law. once it does, you don't argue about it. you know what this reminds me of? there is a stupid award show the espys. you don't need an award show for sports because we know who won because they actually played the game. the best football team, they won the super bowl. i don't care your opinion on the best football team. it the law, you're supposed to help it along. democrats are not going into iraq but i'm routing for my country to succeed. that's now how they played it. they shut down the government and go to the map in every possible way and vote to repeal it 41 times and that's the patriotic thing to do about trying to bring health care to people in this country that don't have it. there are problems, let's work together to fix them. why aren't the republicans for medicare, supposed to be the party of business. for years business is complaining we're an unfair advantage because we have to cover workers because other countries don't have this stup
attack, deception, whatever is necessary. among ourselves we keep the law but when operating in the jungle, we must use the laws of the jungle he wrote. this is what was violated by nsa activities. washington was playing by the laws of the jungle but inside europe's post-modern system. partly this is because the distinction is not easy to maintain. what if you look for terrorists within europe. that is people who still play by the laws of the jungle or even worse. america as a global power is operating all over the world trying to tackle some of the nastiest threats out there. perhaps it doesn't have the luxury to retreat to a garden and renounce nasty tactics. if it did, it's not likely that cha china, russia, al qaeda would follow suit. precisely because washington has to get its hands dirty, it should be smart about this. you don't stop terrorists in europe by listening in on angela merkel's cell phone. the rewards of spying on friendly heads of government are probably outweighed by the risks. and most troubling, it's not clear that many of these specific activities were c
's important that we have the local law enforcement really at different points at the airport to protect not only the perimeter but also things that could happen through the security checkpoint. the other thing that's important, there are teams out there, they're called viper teams. and what they are, the tsa runs essentially detection and deterrent teams. i know in talking to director pistol, he wants to further idlize teams at airports to make -- utilize teams at airports to make sure the american people and public are safe when they go to our airports. i think that with the better coordination of local law enforcement should help tremendously. however, having said that, you really -- it's difficult to stop these types of attacks. anybody can show up, as we saw in the navy yard with the shotgun, in this case with the semiautomatic, and you know, it's like a shopping mall outside the perimeter almost an open shopping mall. it's difficult to protect. these viper teams, i think, with local law enforcement, can provide that needed security. we are going to be reviewing this along with the

security for both tsos and the flying public. the development of a new class of tsa officers with law enforcement status would be a logical approach to accomplishing this goal, end quote. security at airports across the nation will be reviewed on orders from attorney general eric holder in the wake of the l.a.x. shooting. a gunman killed one tsa officer as you recall and wounded two other officers and a passenger. the suspect, 23-year-old paul ciancia, is still listed in critical condition at this hour. earlier, an attorney read a statement from his family in new jersey offering condolences to the victims and begging for privacy. >> paul is our son and brother. we will continue to love him and care for him. we will support him during the difficult times ahead. while we do not mean to minimize the grief and distress experienced by many other families, we hope that the public will understand that this is a very difficult time for our family, too. >> police say the gunman was specifically targeting the tsa, according to a note he had. working for the tsa seems like it's often a thankless

? they work pretty closely. the fbi's charged with domestic law enforcement, if you will. the nsa has a worldwide responsibility. the nsa provides information to the fbi which the fbi can then follow up on if they have some indication there may be a terrorist plot under way in the united states, they would give that information to the fbi. the fbi would thin pursue it and see if there's something really there or not there. but they work closely together. one of the big problems before 9/11 was there wasn't enough coordination between the left-hand of the u.s. government and the right hand of the u.s. government. after 9/11 they did implement much greater coordination. as a result the nsa, the cia, other law enforcement, whether military and, of course, the fbi, department of homeland security, they worked much more closely together and there's a director of national intelligence hogs now oversees all 16 different u.s. intelligence agencies. as a result, they're supposedly do things a lot more coordinated and a lot better way. >> would he have, thanks so much. and to remind the viewers
. it could have been a hell of a lot worse. breaking news a federal law enforcement has a photograph of the suspect paul anthony ciancia. ray la hood served as secretary and joins me now. let me ask you the obvious question. could anything more have been done to prevent this and is there anything that can be done in light of what happened to improve security at places like lax? >> well, piers, as somebody who was in public service for 35 years, our hearts and prayers go out to the loved ones of those who lost loved ones today. good public servants, people well-trained and were in the line of defense. i think everything really worked as well as it could have worked at lax today where law enforcement people stepped in and saved a lot of lives, did what they were trained to do, whether it was the tsa, whether it was the police. the system worked pretty well, piers. and i think we should all take a great deal of comfort in knowing that the system that was put in place after 9/11, the system that has kept a lot of americans safe on aircraft worked well today. >> i totally endorse what you
officers to give them law enforcement status, in other words, guns and arrest powers to protect themselves and the public. meantime, the suspect, who allegedly targeted the tsa, remains in critical condition. cnn's stephanie elam has been piecing together the details of what happened, an incident that might have potentially been prevented. what are you learning? >> reporter: well, wolf, the idea of arming some tsa officers is just one idea that's being suggested in light of the shooting here. in the meantime, investigators continue to look for reasons why this 23-year-old shooter was allegedly so angry with the tsa. >> we were up in security at the time of the shooting, and we heard the initial gun shots. >> reporter: police say alleged gunman paul ciancia entered los angeles international airport's terminal three friday morning armed with an assault rifle and five magazines of ammunition. the fbi says it recovered a handwritten note on ciancia that made it clear he was out to kill multiple tsa officers. authorities say he shot tsa officer gerardo hernandez at point-blank range, sending pa
security people. >> law enforcement source tells cnn before the repositioning, airport police officers complained to the union about being board with the assignment of being stationed behind the tsa checkpoint. do you think that could have prompted a switch? >> i don't know why they were board. i issue is, i think over time, i think that whole issue of airport security has evolved. i think initially when it was set up, they thought the primary point of danger was at the checkpoint when people were going to be searched. when they are going through the system at the particular point and you needed law enforcement there to protect the tsa officers and to take people into custody if they should show up at the screening with weapons or items that they shouldn't have. again, it was always where they were positioned after they went through the screening point. the key is, they wanted to move up front because you can see and determine a great deal of what may be occurring or what is about to occur, if you have eyes upon the arrival of people showing up at the airport, watching people leaving.
